In 284AC it was this hero who retrieved the Staff of Rulership, stolen by Shanzikuul. This Staff of Power is an incredibly powerful artefact thought to have been created by powerful wizards. Following the destruction of the armies of evil in 1998OT attempts were made to destroy those Staffs of Power, but to no avail, thus they were given in secret into the keeping of various wizard fraternities spread across Titan.
The most powerful of these Staffs, the Staff of Rulership was entrusted to the Great Wizard of Analand. In 284AC, this Staff was stolen by Shanzikuul, the "Master of Chaos". However, before he was able to fully use its potential, he was killed by the hero and the Staff returned to the Old World. In completing the mission the hero also defeated the powerful Dark Elven hero, Naas. The hero returned to the Old World, and is rumoured to have taken up a post at the Academy of Chawberry Wood where the pupil has now become a master.
Maldorn is the name given by some to this Old World hero. Maldorn brought back not only the Staff but also a magical weapon called the Moon Sword.
